    Clean, good beds, social. Its located on a corner outside the beautiful parts of Faro but it’s functional. Staff are welcoming and join in on drinking games or pub crawls if you want. Make sure you get your 5 euro key deposit back-mine was forgotten and I couldn’t get in contact with them! Overall a good stay in a good hostel.

    A nice hostel, outdoor common area is a great place to mingle with other guests and the staff. A few discriminating comments made by one of the volunteers about other people and the countries they were from made me leave questioning what would be said about me. All in all, a nice place to be.

    Location was decent and the staff were friendly enough, with the hostel being almost completely empty. However after a 2 night stay I have left with bed bug bites covering my entire back, stomach and arms, with a few around my legs also.

    BEDBUGS! Initially we arrived at le Penguin and were greeted by friendly staff.After 1 night in the mixed female dorm one of us woke up with several bites all over the body.The manager was told about this but was very unhelpful and deceptive. After the second night we saw bed bugs crawling in our beds!We realised we had more bites!One of us had OVER 100 BITES!This is a known problem to the hostel- disgusting and unacceptable!We asked for a partial refund, and eventually got it!! AVOID!!!!
